Cost of Home Health Care
Most health insurances pay for these services only on a short term
and intermittent basis
, meaning that the expectation is that you will recover, improve and regain function and no longer have a need for these services. Each insurance provider has different rules about how many visits are covered. These services are also available on a private pay
or out of pocket
basis. The cost for one of the above mentioned professionals to visit you at home is about $150 per visit. Insurance companies and private pay customers both limit the amount of visits because of the high cost. When individuals have to pay for it out of their pocket, it’s much easier for them to be convinced it is a service they don’t need.
